Novant Health seeks regional artist submissions for two large-scale exterior artworks at the new Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic.

We are looking for art that is uplifting and offers a sense of hope and healing for our patients, visitors, and team members while also reflecting our diverse community.

Novant Health’s Artwork Selection Committee will select final image(s) to be large-scale (8’-0” X 28’-0” total space), digitally printed onto an adhesive backed material mounted to ACM and laminated with a UV protectant by SignArt. Length of artwork installation period is to be determined but no less than 6 months.
